Magazines' iPad Editions Struggle to Keep Your Attention, New Study Finds

Magazines' iPad Editions Struggle to Keep Your Attention, New Study Finds | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
"Readers have trouble focusing on magazines' iPad editions, according to a study that Crispin Porter & Bogusky and Bonnier will use to build tablet ad formats."

But it could be good news for advertisers as users tend to think of iPad magazines as "exploration springboards" and interact with ads more than expected.

Challenge will be for media groups to keep readers coming back to the magazine itself.

iPad Magazines are sluggish... Let's raise their prices ! | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
"Tablet magazines aren't exactly flying off the shelves. But Conde is handing loyal readers of GQ and Vanity Fair on the iPad a price hike, anyway."

Reason advanced being the move to a new publishing platform "a la Wired".

Smart decision ? Seems strange to me...

Developers: why you should build for Android tablets — Scobleizer

Developers: why you should build for Android tablets — Scobleizer | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
"When the going gets tough, the tough gets going" : one of the arguments (among others) of Robert Scoble as to why developers should focus on Android first.

Other points include the fact that the iPad App market is unforgiving and crowded so that for start-ups, there's a better chance of iterating your product on Android first.

Interesting view...

Maybe the journalist could have imagined that after so many months working so much on a project, beyond any strategy, maybe Steve just wanted to be here.. Is it so surprising?
Guillaume Decugis's comment, March 2, 2011 6:18 PM
I agree. But she has a point that it doesn't help to convince the market that Apple can succeed without him

Launch Weekend Sales of Apple iPad 2 Attract New Customers to the Platform | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
As the iPad 2 wraps up its launch weekend, it sounds like analysts are revising their predictions about this being a successful launch to this being a very successful launch.

No sales figures are in, although Apple was anticipated to sell half a million iPad 2s this weekend. But the good news for Apple isn't just in the strong sales. It's who's buying these tablets. According to a survey of those in line for the iPad 2, researchers at Piper Jaffray found that 70% of customers were new to the iPad -- they weren't owners of the first generation device....

The iPad 2 arrives on March 11 | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
So the wishes I listed back in December for the iPad 2 (http://t.co/T0HNDv9) were pretty much covered today by the Apple announcement:
- faster CPU & browser
- lighter / thinner
- better speakers
- Web Cam and Facetime

What I didn't get are Retina display, faster WiFi set-up and an improved iDisk App.

I don't think that'll prevent me from rushing to Apple Store on March 11...

Exclusive: Apple Halves Minimum iAd Buy

Exclusive: Apple Halves Minimum iAd Buy | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
Apple set the bar high for its debut in the mobile advertising business, demanding a minimum spend of $1 million from advertisers looking to hawk their wares from its iAd platform. It was a daunting premium for a nascent system, and one that limited its appeal to big-name companies. Now, with the first run of iAd campaigns ended, Apple is lowering its minimum spend to court the smaller-scale advertisers who originally couldn’t afford the platform.

The day the Mobile community realized they gave up many walled gardens for a bigger one | Is the iPad a revolution? | Scoop.it
The arguments developed in that Techcrunch article against the new position taken by Apple to take a 30% cut on all subscription sales are painfully reminding of what Apple became: a walled garden of its own in the Mobile space.

5 years ago, we all complained about carriers' dictatorships, lack of flexibility and unjustified cuts in revenue-share deals.

Look what we have now...
